The City of Winona, Winona Middle School, and Winona Senior High School will welcome students and chaperones from Misato Japan on March 11 to March 16. Winona is excited to extend a warm welcome to our friends from Misato.
On Thursday March 12, the Misato visitors will be welcomed at City Hall, Winona Middle School, Winona Senior High and a few elementary schools. We encourage community members to join us to welcome the visitors at City Hall. More information about the festivities will be posted at a later date.
The guests will then gather together for a pizza dinner and fun at Rock Solid. The Japanese students will then stay in student homes in Winona. Friday, the students will spend the day at school with our ambassadors. While the adult Japanese visitors will be touring Winona to see our sights and visit some of our local companies. The adult Japanese visitors will spend Friday and Saturday night with Winona families.
Other activities include an adult evening dinner, Sunday morning brunch, and a pot luck dinner. We invite all past ambassadors to our pot luck dinner. Watch for invitations.
